Czech Radio on Frontiers of Solitude
by Ruth Fraňková
Artists from the Czech Republic, Iceland and Norway have got together in the industrial landscape in North Bohemia for a project called Frontiers of Solitude, examining the transformations of landscape, the relationship of people and nature and the loss of historical continuity.
The sound of black polluted water from a petrochemical plant flowing through an open channel near the town of Most, was recorded by one of the artists during a walk through the industrial landscape in North Bohemia.
Recording the sounds of the landscape, heavily affected by coal mining and other industries, was just one part of a twenty-day expedition called Into the Abyss of Lignite Clouds, taking place within the international project Frontiers of Solitude. I met with one of its initiators, artist and university teacher Miloš Vojtěchovský, and I first asked him how this idea emerged: “It is always difficult to explain or describe the history of an idea. I think it is quite a long time ago to organise something that would confront our contemporary situation from different perspective and to expose something which is usually on the periphery of art, culture and media attention.
